Dear Librarians,

If NY cop Austin Finley hadn't ignored the call that came moments before two jumbo jets changed history on 9/11, his twin wouldn't have died alone and afraid. Years pass, but his guilt does not. His erratic behavior leaves department psychiatrist Mercy Samara no choice but to find him unfit for duty. Broken and bitter, Austin heads for Baltimore, turns a forgotten old tug into a houseboat, and becomes an EMT.

Mercy harbors her own dark memories. Starting over means trading the City and the job she'd loved for Baltimore and new challenges as a high school guidance counselor. When an accident on the football field throws them together, friendship grows from shared pain. As the 10th anniversary of 9/11 draws near, can they forgive anger words, or will their memories of harsh judgments drive them farther apart?


"Loree Lough proves once again her superb storytelling skills in FROM ASHES TO HONOR, a peek into the life of one first responder to the infamous 9/11 attack on the World Trade Center and his journey through the ashes. The story will leave you pleading for more." (Cathy Bryant, author of the award-winning Texas Roads and A Path Less Traveled)

"Lough's masterful tale draws the reader in by grit of pure emotion and compelling storytelling. Highly recommended!" (Sandra D. Bricker, Always the Baker, Never the Bride)

Wishing you and yours the best,
